Could you represent consumers in the development of an anti-bribery standard?

Expressions of interest  are invited for a vacancy on a  Standards Australia Technical Committee to develop the Anti-Bribery Standard.


CFA plays an important role in ensuring consumer interests are represented in the development of Australian Standards.  As part of the  CFA Standards Project we are seeking a skilled volunteer to advocate for the consumer interest to be taken into account, and for the Standard to include acceptable requirements for consumer protection.

The Technical Committee will contribute to the development of the international standard which is designed to significantly reduce the possibility that public funds will be misallocated through purchasing or development of inferior goods and services that have been acquired via procurement processes that have been the subject of corruption.

Consumer representatives are expected to participate in all meetings of their committee, to participate in out of meeting electronic communication and to develop their standards through negotiation and consensus with the rest of the committee. The Committee will meet 2-3 times (some via teleconference)  and representatives are reimbursed for their travel expenses.

Standards are published documents setting out specifications and procedures designed to ensure products, services and systems are safe, reliable and perform the way they were intended. They establish the common language which defines quality and safety criteria.

More information is available about Standards Australia and the CFA Standards Project.

Please send a resume to the  by 11 April 2014.
